I have tried there but didn't find anything useful. Most of the
matches are for functions which take a std dev input, and the "moving"
part of the query relates to something else (like moving average in
the qcc package).

Anyway, it's not too difficult to create the function, but I was
wondering if anyone had done it before. Efficiency is a concideration,

I'll post what i come up with...
